Thesis Title: To what extent do EU trade and sustainable development instruments effectively promote labour rights in the Ready-Made Garment industry of South and Southeast Asia?
My PhD explores the EU's approaches to sustainable development through trade and the impact of these approaches on labour rights in the Ready-Made Garment industry of EU trade partner countries, particularly in Asia. The different methods of EU trade that will be analysed within the thesis are: Free Trade Agreements (FTAs), the Generalised System of Preferences (GSP) and the EU-Bangladesh Sustainability Compact.
